captivating sweets

In Tucson, Chocolate Iguana has been around for 27 years with chocolate, candies and espresso.  Recently someone has bought their building to put in a coffee shop they’ve invested in and Chocolate Iguana finds themselves suddenly without a home.  They will be moving out on March 31, 2018.
